Champlain Bridge Update

Work to replace the Champlain Bridge between Crown Point, NY and Addison, VT is progressing on schedule according to presentations at a meeting in Addison on May 11th. Sonar will be used to ensure the deepwater removal of the old bridge is complete. A few of the old piers remain and will be kept in place during construction to serve as work platforms. Negotiations with a firm to build the bridge are expected to be complete by the end of May. Permits for the new project from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Coast Guard have been issued. Construction will begin this field season and is expected to be completed by October of 2011. For further details on the bridge reconstruction visit:
